Possible Megalodon Chunk?

Recommended Posts

Maxalodon

Hi! I’m an amateur fossil hunter from the southern coast of GA. While on a dredged Island, I encountered a fragment of something. I believe this could be a carchorodon megalodon tooth fragment because of it’s smooth “enamel”, sandy texture, and thinkness. Dozens of megalodon teeth have been found in this area. Thoughts? This would help a lot!

It’s hard to tell from a small fragment, but it looks like a piece of bone. It could belong to one of the many ancient mammal species that lived in the area during the tertiary.

I don't think so.

Certainly looks like a layer of enamel, there.  :headscratch:

This was kind of my thought process. (Sorry for the bad drawing.)
